The husband and wife gave birth to their first child, Reese in early 2012. Apparently, it was the same year Jim became an unrestricted free agent after suffering an injury. They then had Graham and Pierce after a few years.

She Understands Her Partner’s Career

Being a former athlete herself, she understands Jim’s football world. The coach has shared how he can count on his wife as she appreciates his work. She couldn’t contain her happiness when he shared the news of him being promoted to Wisconsin’s interim head coach. Teaching football in the place where they first met hit her close to her heart. He shared about her reaction,

She’s shocked, she’s excited, she’s nervous – all of those things. She knows how much this place means to me. She wants me to impact a lot of these kids. She’s excited for the opportunity.

Besides this, Leonhard always consults his partner about every opportunity before he makes a decision.

Before that, the couple used to live in cross plains. They have now moved to Denver temporarily as the former footballer currently works as a defensive backs coach and pass game coordinator for the Denver Broncos.

Besides, they are also a woodland owner. The lovebirds didn’t know much about owning a woodland so they took help from the My Wisconsin Woods Program. They bought the property in 2012. Katie fell in love with a large bur oak about which she said, “When we first saw the land, we knew it was pretty and special. It was totally engulfed with buckthorn.

Since purchasing the land, they have learned so much about the endeavor. Their kids watch sandhill cranes glide into roost on the Wisconsin River. They enjoy having friends and family on their land and share insights on wildlife.
